  • You strongly believe in the importance of security and enjoy the idea of partnering with engineering to ensure the integrity of our customers' data
  • You demonstrate a commitment towards advancing representation and inclusion

Nice to haves:

  • You are experienced in continuous integration practices and tools (Jenkins, Travis CI, Teamcity, CircleCI, Buildkite etc.)
